The article focuses on the use of structured cable plants which are a prominent transmission medium to coaxial cable. It defines that structured cabling plants consist of CAT-5 which meant a higher capacity of cable and connectors to carry voice, data, and video that is being administered to generate reliable and cost-effective performance. It also asserts that the requirements and design for this kind of cabling system are clearly outlined in a published and fully-accepted standards document.
